Prince Eugene and the Belvedere
Prince Eugene’s arrival in Vienna in 1683 marked the beginning of a stellar military career. He became the leading general and the wealthiest man in Europe. What scandals, affairs, and intrigues accompanied Prince Eugene’s journey from refugee to multimillionaire? Why were his Belvedere palaces, in particular, seen as epitomes of elegance and good taste? On this tour you will trace the astonishing biography of Prince Eugene. You will be immersed in the life and culture of his times and find out more about the adornment of this Baroque jewel, which later also served as a sumptuous stage for lavish celebrations and milestones of Austrian history.
